Ebbsfleet boss Liam Daish admits his side are underdogs going into tomorrow's FA Trophy semi-final against Stevenage Borough.
The Trophy holders beat Blue Square Premier leaders Burton Albion on Wednesday evening but Daish insists Boro are the favourites ahead of their much-anticipated clash tomorrow.
The Ebbsfleet boss is merely looking for his side to keep the tie alive in the first leg to give his troops something to play for at Stonebridge Road a week later.
"It is going to be tough," he told the Kent Messenger. "Hopefully we can go there and give a good account of ourselves.
"It would be nice to take them back to Stonebridge Road with them knowing that they are in for a game. I'd like to think a draw would be a good result.
"Stevenage are the favourites - they are near the top of the league and are the form team.
